Review "an authoritative account of the modern law relating to the admissibility of confession evidence...Peter Mirfield as produced a masterly account that will become an essential resource book for any serious student of this area of the law...The book is extremely well written and will appeal to both practitioners and academics. All in all this book is a major achievement and will soon be cited heavily in courts and will soon be cited heavily in courts and classrooms alike."

Mirfield's scholarship cannot be faulted. The book is also nicely written. The question of how far the criminal courts should admit and act on illegally or irregularly obtained evidence is one of immense practical importance, and one which causes acute difficulty in every legal system in the civilised world. Every lawyer who is interested in it will profit by reading Mirfield's analysis./ J. R. Spencer, The Cambridge Law Journal/ 1998.
